The July-August 1965 issue of Antique Automobile, the "official publication of the Antique Automobile Club of America, Inc." featured this singular 1904 Oldsmobile Model R Curved Dash Pie Wagon on the cover. It wasn't really called a "Pie Wagon" by Oldsmobile but its 500 pound, one cubic yard enclosed cargo capacity perfectly suited bakery deliveries and "Pie Wagon" became accepted instead of Oldsmobile's official designation of Light Delivery Wagon. This Oldsmobile Pie Wagon was discovered largely intact but missing the body from the beltline up by the Stone Mountain Museum's founder, Tommy Protsman, in the early 1950's. He sent it to George Green, recognized at the time as the expert in Curved Dash Oldsmobile restorations, in Lambertsville, New Jersey and the two of them set out to create the magnificently restored vehicle seen here. It earned its AACA National First Prize at Hershey in 1963 and it’s Senior National First Prize in June 1964. It is still in potential trophy winning, high point condition, forty-five years later -- which is, incidentally, almost as old as it was when George Green began its restoration in the early Sixties. It is the only known real Light Delivery Wagon known to survive. It fires right up and runs great. The collection of period accessories on it is, alone, highly rare and includes a set of Badger Brass Solar Model 56 kerosene headlights and a brass railing on the footboard with the Olds emblem integrated with it. No one with any soul can look upon it and not smile, it is that charming, rare and beautifully presented, the one and only of its kind.
